Greetings from Paris…wish you were here!
Photo taken on the left bank in April 2010 from my cafe seat.
I was en route to Morocco for a week of volunteering and had an eight hour layover in fabulous Paris. I spent a semester abroad in Paris back in 1993 and have come to love this incredible city with all my heart. I only had eight hours but I had to do it. I grabbed my carry-on bags, jumped the RER and headed straight to my old beloved stop at St. Michel. As I took the escalator up, my heart leaped with excitement and joy. I could hardly wait. It had been ten years.
The escalator lead me up taking me back into time to my youth. Then I saw her…Paris…City of Lights. She was just as beautiful as I had left her. I found the nearest outdoor cafe, grabbed a seat and ordered my adored cafe au lait and savored at this amazing place which I can’t wait to return to someday soon.
